Dana White Claims Jake Paul Has 'No Chance' Of Fighting Conor McGregor

Dana White Claims Jake Paul Has 'No Chance' Of Fighting Conor McGregor

Dana White has revealed there is 'zero per cent' chance Conor McGregor faces off with YouTube star Jake Paul.

YouTube star Paul is currently 2-0 in professional boxing and thinks a fight with McGregor will see him come out victorous.

But UFC president White thinks there is no chance the 'Notorious' fights 'kids with f**king YouTube videos' right now.

"[McGregor] is one of the greatest fighters on Earth right now," White explained to TMZ Sports.

"He shouldn't be fighting kids that have f--king YouTube videos."

McGregor has shown an interest in high-profile exhibitions in the past, having fought Floyd Mayweather in 2017. A bout with Manny Pacquiao is also mooted for some time in 2021.

But White thinks the Irishman is still too good to take that step permanently.

"There's a market for these kinda fights. It's just not what I do," the 51-year-old continued. "There will be a day when Conor McGregor could do these types of fights and make a bunch of money."

Jake Paul Sparring Partner Claims Ben Askren Is "Going Down"

published at12 days ago

White told The Sports Network: "Yeah, I'm not doing anything [in boxing] any time soon.

"Never did I say that I was doing anything, but I've been looking and kicking the tires of boxing for the last couple of years.

"The reason you've never seen me do anything is because that's how screwed up and broken it is. That's what a mess it is. It's going to require so much time, money, and the whole thing needs to be rebuilt and restructured.

"There's always going to be fights that'll pop up that'll make money, but when you're in a situation where, this Mayweather [fight with Logan Paul] does more buys than [Tyson] Fury versus [Deontay] Wilder or some of these legitimate big fights, it's pretty scary."

Jake Paul fought NBA point guard Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, emerging as comfortable winner.

The 23-year-old thinks he'd kick McGregor's a*** if he stepped back into the world of boxing after his Octagon return against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257.

"These MMA guys go to practice every day and have to spend their whole day on one thing - elbows, knees, grappling, take downs so there's a lot they have to work on," he told BT Sport.

"But I've been going into the gym for the past three years and all I've been focusing on is boxing, so come over into my arena and you're going to get your a** beat."
